WC waste positioning

Postby Confused of Weymouth » Wed Jun 29, 2011 6:51 pm

I am looking to change the wc in my house. The waste from the current wc goes down into the floor. Is there a standard rule as to where this hole is positioned? I have bought a new wc and am now worried that it may not fit if the hole does not match up with the hole in the new wc. Didn't think of this when I bought and am not sure if the hole goes down or out the back of the new wc.....will see when it turns up I suppose!!

You will not have a problem, all wc's are pretty much standard in as much as that the outlet will come out of the rear of the wc, (ie- horizontally), but there are lots of adaptors that can be bought from plumbers merchants to suit every position and they are relatively cheap to buy, the diameter of the outlet is also standard. All you will need is a right angle adaptor, female fitting on one end to fit onto the wc and male fitting on the other to fit into the hole in the floor.
Hope this helps.
